CLEVELAND (May 1, 2020) – The Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) announced today that Marty McGann has been promoted to Executive Vice President, Advocacy & Strategic Initiatives.

McGann has been with the organization since 2011 joining as Vice President, Government Advocacy and taking on leadership for the overall department as Senior Vice President in 2014.  In this new role, he will continue to manage the organization’s advocacy strategy including the development and management of GCP's government priorities, objectives, and programs; serve as chief lobbyist for GCP and its member companies; and engage and educate political leaders at all levels of government on GCP and GCP member companies’ priority issues.

Marty’s continued leadership of strategic efforts like government reform, the creation of a regional innovation agenda, and strengthening partnerships are central to GCP’s efforts to position our region for economic success.
